M sport rear badge

Just wondering, when you get an M-Sport model, you get the M branding all over, i.e. steering wheel, wheels and so on.

The badge on the rear only dictates the model 116,118. Is there an M badge you can get hold of to stick on? Just think it will finish it off.

Yes both cases. You get all M branding when you buy the M package, and if you don't, you can always buy the M badge (like me ) :P

You don't get an M badge on the back, because its not an M-Car or an M-Performance car. Putting an M badge on a non-M car only makes you look like a poser to those that know what an M-car is. So I wouldn't do it.

If I had a pound for every car I've seen in various "M badge w****r" threads I would have been able to buy my F20 with cash!

I was only asking a simple question, just that every other part of the car has the m logo just wondering why not on the back.

Jees wish I have never bothered asking

you can put whatever you want on your car, don't mind the others.
poser or not, it's your issue.
guys stop acting like bmw's attorneys, if he wishes to get an m badge, he is free to do so.

I do not see the big issue with the badge if it is a M Sport version as it is fully sanctioned by M Performance, hence the other M badges on the car

If you look at the F20 / F21 M135i it has the M badge on its rear and it isnt a real M car

BMW put the M badge on it

The 125i M Sport and M135i both have come M badged or de-badged here.

As someone else pointed out the m sport has m designation all over it. Therefore I really don't see a problem with it myself if that's what you want.

Always makes me laugh when folks do that: a 320d / 520d with an M badge.
It's always the weediest spec cars that do that. Does one also pipe in V8 engine sounds on the speakers to complete the illusion.

I have a lot more respect for folks who actually buy a used M3/M5/M6 when they can afford it.

My suggestion: enjoy your car for every bit what it is, and it's awesome.
Leave the badge mods to the kids in clapped out golfs and astras.

Notice that cars like M3, M5 and M6 do NOT have the ///M-badge in the back. It actually says ///M3, ///M5 or ///M6. When it says only ///M, that means the car has some ///M-parts, not that it is an ///M-car. If you put a badge that says ///M3 on a 3-series that is not an M3, that is stupid. On an M-Sport car, the badges are already there, but they do not say M3!

I think at least most BMW enthustiasts would notice the difference.

Correction:
My dealer tells me that only the M135i and 125i M Sport with M Brakes has the rear badge

Sorry if I came off a little blunt. We are all new at some point. I once asked if I should get the V8 or V6 model 5-Series. Needless to say I got flamed.

Feel free to do! I wish I could afford a M135 bit I can't. So I optioned the M package instead, but does it mean I am pretending?? I dun think is childish or silly as long as you dun put AMG on a BMW or Mugen on a Nissan will do.... I really have seen cars like tat on the road...

My 125i M Sport with M Brakes arrives in Brisvagas early next week, hopefully I should have it by the following week. I will let let you know if it does and post pics

Best 'bad' car I saw was in Cairo. It was a old 80's square shaped nissan bluebird with a mercedes grill, AMG badges and M stripes. I wondered how he would have discribed it '4 door GTRAMGM0'

Many thanks. Looking forward to seeing the pictures and especially your review of the car as I have ordered the same

Even though your be getting your new car before me, strangely enough it somehow makes the wait it bit easier seeing others get theirs (if that makes sense).

I know what you mean. The time has gone past quickly since I ordered mine back in early June. That is, until I was informed the other day, now it seems like a lifetime waiting
